Writing Tutorial - How to write an Anti-Hero
Time to discuss Anti-Heroes!
Now we all know what the Protagonist is right? That’s the good guy. And the Antagonist? Well that would be your bad guy.
So who is this “Anti-Hero?”
To put it simply your Anti-hero is a type of protagonist. Male or female, they are often referred to as the “flawed protagonist”.
So they will be the main character we follow throughout the book but one that doesn’t really match up with the expected convention of “the protagonist/hero”
Quick point, I know in the past I have mentioned that a character should not be perfect. Gods no! we don’t want any Mary Sue’s running around.
However in my Creating characters post I did discuss making your characters believable and including vices and flaws. Now just adding a few

A simple guide on: Commissioning an Artist.
It's often not as simple as one wants it to be when both artist and client want it to be: Cost efficient, time efficient and quality efficient.
I've often spend my time discussing the best way to handle commissions with clients and artist friends that I came to the conclusion that clarity and understanding is key.
I will divide the guidelines I work with based on 3 commission types.
:bulletblue: Character commissions.
:bulletblue: Book covers ( or illustrations)
:bulletblue: Concept art.
Reading all 3 parts will give you the full scope as a lot of it applies to one another as well.

:bulletgreen: Character commissions.
:bulletblue: 1. Reference board.
If you as a client have very specific characteristic features all set and done for your character it can be very useful for the artist if you'd make them a reference board of art and photos that portray these things.
:bulletblue: 2. Personality.

Artist Alley 101: Displaying Your Work/DOs n DONTs
Hello everyone! Welcome to Part 3 of my Artist Alley 101 guide!
This is meant to be a good start for those who have never been a part of an artist alley before, as well as a nice refresher to those of you who are veterans of alleys everywhere! I will try to be as detailed as possible while making the information easy to reference and read through!
Hope you enjoy, and feedback is definitely appreciated! Let me know your thoughts, reactions, some of your own alley stories, as well as if you have any suggestions to add to this tutorial! I definitely haven't thought of everything, so if you have new ideas to share, I'd love to hear them!
Here are the links to Part 1 and Part 2 if you'd like to take another look!

  • Listening to: Nothing But Theives - Itch
Hello everyone! :D 
    I changed my name, finally, after months of debating on a suitable name for myself. The old one is kind of making me cringe as I get older. My 15 year old self thought it was a good idea, but.... yeeeeaaahhh no. e_e So now I'm going by Chaolio. How do you like it? ;D It's simply because of my love for chao if anyone didn't notice(I consider myself a chao geek). Not that anyone cares, but YEAH! It might be changed. I don't know.

    Another thing! I'm thinking of doing commissions soon, but i'm still kind of setting up shop right now. Plus, I pretty much work everyday so I'm not quite sure how the whole thing will turn out. But it will be done!
